What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"(Explores) unintentional beauty, one that owes its existence to the nature of the camera itself."—Art & Antiques

"Almost without exception (the pictures) are arresting accidents of artistic expression, alive with personality."—San Francisco Magazine

"A very eclectic collection of beautiful but strangely intriguing photographs."—Roanoke Times
